    I am looking for a very thin, OWB belt holster for my XDS 45. I have good IWB, but for the winter months i think OWB may be better.

    Just looking for a inexpensive option that keeps the gun close. i have a hard time concealling anything but a small 380 usually. Any suggestions? won't be using it too much as i prefer IWB but there are those times when hiking that it would be easier to OWB carry.

    I carry a Mitch Rosen/Upper Limit. Rides high and close to the body. It comes in the "boned " version and their Express Line ($75.00). After carrying for 21 years , I finally found one that is comfortable and concealable. Good Luck !!

    I have this Winthrop holster that I like very much when I do carry OWB.

    At $45, it's one of the better options out there with no waiting.

    Love my leather holster from Zlogonje. "Elemental" OWB holster with arcane cut pattern crafted by Dan. Rides close, secure and out of sight. I have only had it a month, but if I can carry it during these 100+ degree days, then the rest of the year will be a breeze.
    I like the OWB carry because it allows me to slide the holster up front (appendix) when I am standing or walking about and then a bit more towards my side when I am sitting. Never gets in my way and is comfortable all day, no matter what particular type of work (social or otherwise) I may encounter. ;)

    I agree with Dingo on the Mitch Rosen Express Line. I started with the Upper Limit for competition draw effect, and found that I prefer the forward cant of the 5JR-President for deeper concealment. It keeps the butt of the grip from printing, but they both hug the belt nicely and mold to the gun like a glove. Carry on.

    I have an elemental on order (black with mahogany trim) for my Glock 19 and I can't wait to get it! I get more excited and impatient with every great review I read :) I'm sure I'll be ordering one for my XDS as soon as funds allow.

    JPB Master's Leather Holster

    I have two, one for my XD 5 inch and one for my Glock 27. Fantastic quality. Need to break em in but once you got em broke in, they are so smooth.

    You can get with or without retention straps.

    They make a lot of different types of holsters.

    Hybrid in and out non retention holsters, etc...

    Check em out!

    Another satisfied Zlogonje "Elemental" holster owner here. I believe you'll find the price in your budget area. My Zlogonje holster review.

    I also have an Elemental, and haven't looked at another OWB since, except out of curiosity. There was about an 8 week wait, but worth it in MHO.

    I wear mine with a T shirt, or a T under and a button down short sleave untucked over. My wife didn't know until she hugged me. It is high, and tight.

    That definitely should more comfortable than an IWB holster. I may have to try that, since I almost always carry IWB with a t-shirt over it anyway. I've been looking at this leather OWB holster from D.M. Bullard.

    I do a Desantis mini scabbard. $40 at midway. Not too bad for the price.
